Decoration Ideas for a Tea Party

Pink balloons, streamers hung over the party table, white Christmas lights and a pretty tablecloth will help make an elegant Tea Party.

Gather the tablecloth at the corners and hold in place using rubber bands - then slip pretty fake flowers into the band.

 

 

 

 

Bring out your best china (or use solid color silver or pink paper plates) and all the fancy dishes you can find.

Fill the tea pot with pink lemonade and leave out the sugar … let the girls sweeten their drink with sugar cubes from the sugar bowl.

In the creamer pitcher put ginger ale for a sparkly drink.

Fun Ideas

Make the party into a Teddy Bear Tea Party or ask the girls to bring along their favorite doll. Set a place for the Teddy’s or Dolls at the table too. Make tiara’s or have a fun party favor like sunglasses or hats for the Teddy’s and Dolls.

 

 

Tea Party Games


Sugar Cube Race
Divide into teams (or play individually) and give each team a wooden spoon and one sugar cube.   Place the sugar cube on the spoon and while holding the spoon at the handle teams race, one at a time, from the starting line around a chair at the other end of the playing field and back to their team where they hand off the spoon to the next player.  The first team with all their players to complete the race wins!  If the sugar cube falls off the spoon the player must go back to the start and begin again.  
Variation:   For the second round have players place 2 sugar cubes on the spoon to race.   For each round add another sugar cube! 


Sugar Chop
Players transfer sugar cubes from the table to a bowl using chopsticks.   Give each player a set of chopsticks and 15 - 20 sugar cubes.   On "go" players use only their chopsticks to move the sugar cubes from the table to their bowl.  


Sugar Stack
Give every person a popsicle stick to hold in his/her mouth. Have each person try to balance 6 sugar cubes on the popsicle stick stacked on top of each other and keep them there for a minimum of 5 seconds. 
Popsicle sticks
6 dice or sugar cubes

Tea Party Food

Veggie trays with celery and cream cheese or carrots and Ranch dressing.

 

Let the girls create (away from the party table) their own cupcakes and then serve them at the party table with their “tea”. Set out cupcakes, sprinkles, candies and writing gel. Let them decorate 2 or 3 and take home the ones they don’t eat at the party.
